    The digital divide is a multi-dimensional complex.Simon Rogerson - 2020 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 18 (3):321-321.
    Since the advent of accessible online computing, the digital divide existed, it exists today and it will exist tomorrow. It means that almost every aspect of life will be affected, particularly for those who are most vulnerable for whatever reason. It is important that research-informed action addresses this unacceptable state. In this special issue, a number of perspectives are taken to consider different aspects of the digital divide. In total, they illustrate the synergistic value of crossing disciplinary boundaries and adopting (...)

    Guest editorial.Simon Rogerson - 2017 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 15 (3):182-182.
    In 2013, the Edward Snowden disclosures, for which he has been described as a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a patriot and a traitor, shocked the world. Here was clear evidence of how technology was being used covertly to survey and control citizens. The impact of these disclosures continues to reverberate worldwide. It is therefore appropriate to devote a Special Issue of the Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society to this topic.

    Trustworthy publishing.Simon Rogerson - 2016 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 14 (1).
    Whether we are authors, publishers or readers, we have responsibilities and obligations to act in an ethically acceptable way within academic publishing. If the integrity of academic literature is to be maintained in the digital era, authors must be educated in publication ethics, publishers should actively promote ethical practice and decision makers should be mindful that strategy does not compromise ethical robustness. Only then will we have trustworthy relationships across the publishing landscape, and society will prosper.

    The challenge of raising ethical awareness: A case-based aiding system for use by computing and ICT students.Don Sherratt, Simon Rogerson & N. Ben Fairweather - 2005 - Science and Engineering Ethics 11 (2):299-315.
    Students, the future Information and Communication Technology (ICT) professionals, are often perceived to have little understanding of the ethical issues associated with the use of ICTs. There is a growing recognition that the moral issues associated with the use of the new technologies should be brought to the attention of students. Furthermore, they should be encouraged to explore and think more deeply about the social and legal consequences of the use of ICTs. This paper describes the development of a tool (...)

    The Evolution of E-learning Management Systems.Nuno Sotero Alves da Silva, Gonçalo Jorge Morais da Costa, Mary Prior & Simon Rogerson - 2011 - International Journal of Cyber Ethics in Education 1 (3):12-24.
    The development of educational technologies is enhancing a distinctive feature of learning environments: the learner’s personalized environment. However, the current literature in e-learning seems to neglect an important discussion: will individuals and organizations face an enhancement concerning ethical dilemmas due to this evolution? To promote this discussion, this paper builds on a consideration of e-learning definition and its ethical dilemmas, and human-centred learning concept and its dimensions, to examine the implications of integrating social and cultural contexts. By examining the evolution (...)

    Advances in information ethics.Simon Rogerson - 1997 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 6 (2):73–75.
    The versatility and adaptability of information technology offer many potential benefits to society, its organisations and its citizens; but there are also many associated risks. The social and ethical implications of this technology warrant special attention and have resulted in the creation of information ethics as a discrete area complementary to business ethics. Simon Rogerson is Director of the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility at De Montfort University, The Gateway, Leicester, LE1 9BH, UK.

    For the record: the evolution of acceptable digital technology.Simon Rogerson - 2021 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 19 (4):425-432.
    This is an analysis of JICES, a journal that, for 19 years, has captured, for the record, the broader issues surrounding digital technology and how these might be addressed; thus, resulting in acceptable digital technology. Established and up and coming scholars in the field need to be provided with supportive avenues to share their views and ideas of how to realise ethical digital technology. JICES continues to have a key role to play in this.

    Introduction to the invited paper by Ellen Christiansen.Simon Rogerson - 2014 - Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society 12 (1).
    We have decided that periodically we will invite a leading scholar to write a paper on a particular topic. This paper will be subject to responses from other leading scholars working in the same area. The hope is to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on an important issue which will be of interest to the readership and inspire some to submit further papers relevant to this discourse. In this way we aim to stimulate further cross-discipline dialogue. The first invited paper is (...)
